Highway 1 - 216th to 264th Widening

Map of Highway 1 - 216th to 264th widening, showing Existing bridges at 216th and 264th, Underpass at 248th, replace Glover Road underpass, Replace CP Rail underpass, reconfigure 232nd Interchange, new 72nd underpass, widening Weastbound Median HOV Lane from 216th to 1.5 km west of 264th and Westbound median widening/HOV lane from 216th to 264th

This Highway 1 widening project is located in the Township of Langley between the new 216th Street Interchange and the 264th Street (Highway 13) Interchange.

Last updated: March 7, 2023

This segment of highway is operating at capacity during peak periods and contains vertical clearance issues for commercial vehicles. The 232nd Street Interchange configuration no longer operates well under current traffic volumes and will only get worse as volumes increase.  

The project will include:

  • Widening Highway 1 to accommodate eastbound and westbound high occupancy vehicle (HOV) and electric vehicle (EV) lanes in the median between the 216th Street and 264th Street Interchanges
  • Constructing a new crossing at Glover Road, including new three-metre-wide multi-use pathways in both directions and increased clearance over the highway
  • Reconfiguring the existing 232 Street Interchange and the replacement of the existing crossing, including three-metre-wide multi-use pathways in both directions and increased clearance over the highway
  • Replacing the existing railway crossing immediately east of Glover Road, including increased highway clearance

Project Cost

The project is funded with contributions from:

  • The Government of Canada
  • Province of B.C.
  • Township of Langley


  • The ministry has secured Tybo Contracting Ltd. to complete construction of the new Glover Road crossing
  • Detailed design of the entire project is nearing completion
  • Advanced works are complete
  • Construction crews mobilized at the project site in December 2022 to build Highway 1 lane diversions in preparation for the Glover Road closure
  • Glover Road will be closed and detours will be in place beginning March 13, 2023 until summer 2024

Project Objectives

This project will:

  • Reduce Highway 1 congestion
  • Improve overall safety and capacity of the highway and the 232nd Street Interchange
  • Eliminate low clearance issues for commercial vehicles on the corridor
  • Encourage motorists towards more sustainable transportation rather than traveling in single occupancy vehicles
  • Support increased use of existing Highway 1 transit services by improving transit travel times and reliability
  • HOV / EV lanes will support CleanBC and reduce greenhouse gas emissions
  • Enhance pedestrian and cycling features at Glover Road and 232nd Street


  • Functional design was completed in winter 2020
  • Preliminary construction works began in spring 2021
  • Detailed design completed in fall 2022
  • Implement Glover Road construction detours – scheduled to begin in March 13, 2023
  • Complete new Glover Road crossing and remove Glover Road detour by summer 2024 (Highway 1 diversions will remain in place until project completion)
  • Construct the replacement railway crossing – scheduled to begin in summer 2023
  • Construct the 232nd Street Interchange and median HOV / EV lanes – scheduled to begin in spring 2023
  • Complete highway construction in 2025

Notice of Upcoming Detour

During construction of the new Glover Road crossing, Glover Road will be closed to all traffic (including pedestrians and cyclists) between University Drive south of Highway 1 and Telegraph Trail north of Highway 1. Traffic will be detoured as shown on the Detour Route Map. The construction contractor will be required to implement these detours based on an approved traffic management plan.

A public Information Session regarding the Glover Road crossing replacement, detour routes and highway widening was held January 12, 2023. We thank everyone who attended.
